The general draw to A&D is not simple problem solving with your friends, you must attempt to steer events to your own goals while working with very questionable allies in the face of the story which throws diverse situations ranging from battles, to mysteries, to interrogations and beyond. The general goal is to attempt to figure out the situation of the story, use this knowledge to your advantage and quite simply, survive. Choose, and see the consequences.
As a side note, A&D is open posting, so you can post at any time as long as it doesn't result in a double post or you start moving things along and leave too many people behind. This allows members from different time zones to participate easily, as such, rather than several short posts occurring at a planned time or all at once, one long, detailed post is preferred every so often. The usual effect is you post every few hours, however thanks to the similar time zones, we should be able to post at a faster rate as the rp picks up. There is however, always a limit of at least 2 paragraphs per post. (around 6 sentences minimum)
No, characters in A&D carry over some characteristics from their angelic/demonic past lives (if they are still excessively angelic/demonic), such as Leiv's hair and eyes, my pale skin, eyes and hair, things like that due to the fact we are all technically human this season.
This part is mostly focused on members who are carrying over characters from previous seasons, don't worry about it.
